The Rickeybird, 38-year-old Patagonian Conure
Here's what I observed with the ol' Rb. When he was young, in particular, before he hit sexual maturity at 3-4 years, he loved having his beakie held, tugged, squeezed. Over the years that changed, and he hasn't tolerated any beakieholding forEVER. So maybe it was a baby thing that brought on memories/sensations of feeding?

Munchkin loves touching and cuddling into my almost closed hand, and sits there for 20 -30 mins, it's a bit hard with my arthritic hands. Sometimes we wonder how she breathes. My husband can get up close and personal, scratching around her eyes and ears and the thick small feathers around her head she can't get to. He also opens her new feather shafts - she actually tells him to.

My neighbour has an older cockatiel ( about 20 - a year younger than ours ) they have had to clip his beak every 10 weeks since they got him.

What species of bird is Munchkin? I’m here with Willow (blue Quaker) and he’s err-erring and running back and forth unless I hold him in my hand (or both hands are better).

I’m thinking that Quakers are more beaks-on birds and do more beaking along with more allopreening. I don’t know much about Patagonian conures but perhaps they don’t do that? Or the Rb doesn’t “feel that way” about you.

Willow gets upset if I stop cuddling or touching him. I’ve been trying to get him to go hang out on my shoulder and he declines. He wants to be right in my face where I have to pet him with one or both hands.

Munchkin is a cockatiel, but a cross mutation and not much bigger than a budgie. She is extremely affectionate, kisses me good morning and good night and whenever she moves from me to hubby. Will sit and preen for hours on our knees or feet. We think that the breeder had Budgies and tiels and used all his limbs to humanise them. When I used to work from home she would sit for hours on my knee under my desk or on my laptop keyboard if it was cold.

Willow is doing it for himself (the beak holding, I mean).
